For security best-practice, you would normally segregate duties such that the network admin would implement and maintain, the security admin sets policy and reviews implementation and ongoing operation.  

For example: A security admin evaluates a system or is told by an auditor that you need to implement complex passwords for everyone in windows domain.      THe security admin would write a policy (i.e. all password should have a mix of upper/lower and be changed every 45 days with 3 failed tries resulting in a 1 hour lockout, and it should record failed attempts).    After approval, the sec admin gives the policy to the network admin to implement.    The network admin would decide how to best implement the policy.   Maybe its AD policy, maybe some other 3rd party.   The Sec admin would then review the implementation to be sure it matched the policy, then ask for a weekly report of lockouts for review.    


This type of flow would be used for any project.    Sec admin sets the direction and policy but stays hands off of the adminstration and implementation.    THe network team would setup the system following the guidelines set forth by the sec admin.       The Sec admin would review the implementation and review the logs as needed.  

Thats my 2 cents.
